If they're truly dead for good, I won't miss them one bit.

The time of the super-sized home has ended. Long live the moderately sized home!
I thought it was funny that the article states that the smaller home is now the trend. Then, a 1,200 sq. foot home is mentioned but the builder being interviewed says something to the effect of "yes, smaller, but not THAT small!"
My home is under 1,200 sf. Heck, my home is under 1,100 sf. But then again, my washer and dryer sit outside. And I only have one closet. Yeah, one closet! And it's not even in a bedroom. Two bedrooms and not a closet in either one. That'll be nice when we sell.
Oh, and no pantry.
And guests staying in the closet-less guest room better not have much luggage 'cause there ain't much floor space.
I can barely find a place to keep an extra package of paper towels. There's no way I can shop for the Costco size of anything.
And good thing someone finally got around to inventing the flat panel TV.
I would love to have a full 1,200 square feet. What a luxury that would be!

Yeah, we could use more room. But not that much more room.
The planet just ain't big enough for that kind of nonsense.
